4 MONDAY. OCTOBER 14. 1996 THE SAUNA JOURNAL AT WORK FROM PAGE 3 • Dr. Loc Tran, associate professor of physics, attended a two week Summer Faculty Enhancement Program conference in June. During the workshop, conducted by the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) and the American Institute of Physics (AIP), a manual was presented entitled, "Power Ideas in Physical Science: A Model Course." The manual allows a college faculty member to build an introductory physical science course for pre-service elementary teachers and non-science majors. Participants were also able to observe students in a lab where the course was being taught and perform the lab activities themselves. Tran also attended a conference in July in Toronto, Canada, entitled, "Science & Religion Course Program," conducted by the John Templeton Foundation. During the conference, key speakers or workshop faculty presented connections between science and religion from the perspective of history. Colleges and universities teaching a course in science and religion may submit a syllabus to the foundation. If accepted, an award of $10,000 is granted to the faculty member and the school. Tran is in the process of designing such a course to be submitted to the Templeton Foundation. The foundation has presented awards to many institutions in the United States and abroad. • Dr. Weston Opitz, assistant professor of biology, has been selected to serve as chief editor for Insecta Mundi, an international journal of insect sys- tematics.

This past summer, Opitz researched in the historic laboratories of the American Museum of Natural History, New York, and the Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago. He also visited seven university museums during'his travels. Opitz will be presenting a paper about his research on tropical beetles at the national meetings of the Entomological Society of America in Louisville, Ky, this fall. • During the past year, Dr. Matthew Holland, assistant professor of history and Professor Heath Spencer, assistant professor of history, served on the programming committee for the 18th annual Mid-America Conference on History.
